first you should manually add materials to your shape:

<Shape nodeId="XY" materialIds="19, 20, 30" ... />

then get to know which you added (materialIds may change when editing or importing it with GE):

self.switchMaterials = {}
local nrMaterials = getNumMaterials(nodeId) or 0
for i=1,nrMaterials do
local materialId = getMaterial(nodeId, (i-1))

and then you can change them with:

setMaterial(nodeId, self.switchMaterials[1])
